My favourite kind of style where I feel comfy is vintage and shabby chic style... this card I thinks an element of vintage elegance. The rich dark Rich razzleberry paired with the beautifully simply very vanilla rely gives a lovely look. 

A simple card no fancy folding needed sometimes just plain layering is the best to set of the stunning stamp sets I am lucky enough to work with. This also makes this card easy for any one to replicate.
